This was not the post I planned today.
It was not the day that anyone at Sandy Hook Elementary had planned, either.
What has helped me most, a quote from Mr. Rodgers:
“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” ― Fred Rogers
I choose to see and remember the helpers and the heroes. To let the love and strength of their actions fill my heart, so that I may focus on sending love to the families of that community. Because hearts filled with love, and actions of love, are ultimately the only thing that will heal our world and everyone in it.
